Hello, crafty friends!  I hope all of you are safe and warm especially those that are effected by the east coast snowstorm.  I've a Valentine's Day card I'm sharing today using the Papertrey Ink stamp set, Big Hugs along with the Cover Plate: Hearts die.
I used a piece of watercolor paper to die cut the hearts cover plate, then using three different distress inks, picked raspberry, worn lipstick and spun sugar, I did a wash of watercolor going from dark to light.  Once that was almost dry, I used a paint brush to add some pick raspberry splashes of color and set it off to the side to completely dry.  Next I took the hearts that were die cut from the watercolor paper and did direct ink to paper using the three different inks and, laying them on paper towel sprayed them with water to activate the ink.  I also die cut hearts from a small piece of metallic gold paper.  Once that was done, I laid my ombre watercolored piece on top of my white card base using it as a guide and taped my hearts into place, popping some of them with foam adhesive.  Then I actually taped my ombre piece onto my card front using foam adhesive and added my die cut Hugs and xoxo banner. 

Thanks for stopping by!
